Seven Worlds, One Planet: First look at new David Attenborough BBC series

The BBC has revealed a first look at its new David Attenborough series Seven Worlds, One Planet.

A stunning four-minute prequel for forthcoming series sound-tracked by Sia and Hans Zimmer collaboration premiered over the weekend in front of crowds at Glastonbury.

And in a surprise appearance in front of his biggest ever live audience, the show’s narrator, Sir David Attenborough, took to the legendary Pyramid stage to introduce the world premiere of the new series’ curtain-raising first look clip.

As well as scenes from the seven-part landmark series, the prequel also features some exclusive additional footage.

Seven Worlds, One Planet will celebrate the diversity of life on each of the world’s continents, but also the many challenges faced by animals in a modern world dominated by humanity.

By telling unknown, unseen and unexpected wildlife stories, the series will uncover the fundamental truth about what makes each one of our seven worlds unique.

Sir David Attenborough said: “Seven Worlds, One Planet will resonate with audiences worldwide. We all belong to a continent after all, we all share planet earth.

“I am delighted to introduce the latest work from BBC Studios’ Natural History Unit.”

The song and music featured on the trailer is Out There by Sia and Hans Zimmer.

Sia said: “I was honoured to be asked to collaborate with Hans Zimmer for Seven Worlds, One Planet. The work this programme – and the Planet Earth series – does on behalf of our planet is essential and I’m proud to be a part of it.”

Hans Zimmer added: “Sia is a real virtuoso and has a voice to match the power of her song writing.

“Out There is sublime and it was a joy for myself and the Bleeding Fingers team to bring it to life and give the Seven Worlds, One Planet prequel a soundtrack to complement the extraordinary imagery and voice of Sir David.”

Seven Worlds, One Planet will air on BBC One.
